Brad Pitt Has Been Cleared In His Child Abuse Investigation

We pretty much lost it when we heard that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were getting a divorce, and our craze went to an all new level when we heard rumors that Brad Pitt might have also been abusing his children. Luckily, after a thorough investigation his name has been cleared and we can all rest easy. 

The claim originally came from an anonymous source who called in to alert officials that Brad had an incident with one of his children on a private plane. While he was drinking, he reportedly was being verbally abusive and “got physical” with his son, only to spend the night at a hotel afterwards. The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services interviewed Brad, Angelina, witnesses and their children before concluding nothing bad had happened, despite the fact that Angelina said Brad was continually showing inappropriate behavior towards their son for quite a while. 

Still, Angelina has received full custody after their divorce, and Brad only has visitation rights. Tbh, we’re so sad to see this once-perfect family fall apart, but we can only hope the rest of this process will stay peaceful for them.
